RACP encourages its Advanced Trainees and Fellows to develop and conduct research projects on specific recommendations as part of specialty training and ongoing education. Outcomes from these projects can be:
• Presented at conferences or published in journals
• Adapted and implemented across health services and specialties
• Used as ongoing references or resources
• A career development opportunity
A NSW Health and ACI clinical initiative is currently underway, which aims to address clinical variation in inpatient and ED management of bronchiolitis in NSW, improve adherence to clinical guidelines and reduce potential harm from unnecessary testing and treatment. This clinical initiative supports the PCHD Evolve Top 5 List recommendations. If you’re interested in undertaking research in this area, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
RACP Evolve will be attending ANZSGM ASM 2019 in Adelaide between 13-15 May. If you are interested in presenting your research on the ANZSGM Evolve Top 5 List recommendations and low-value care, contact email@example.com.
